Founder / Neurodiversity Lead
Me.Decoded / Capco
Helen Needham is a neurodiversity inclusion advocate, as well as a business transformation and data management specialist with 20 years experience in financial services. For much of this time Helen felt like an outsider, struggling with being perceived as difficult and battling with anxiety, before she was diagnosed as autistic in 2017. Two years after her son. Understanding that her brain is wired differently, Helen realised she needed a different approach to work if she wanted to succeed in the workplace. Something which is needed for other neurodivergent thinkers. Helen’s mission is to achieve this at Capco and more widely through Me.Decoded, a website which helps give voice to the Neurodivergent.
